Meet the team

We take our business seriously, but not ourselves!

Greg Ashe


In 2009, Greg Ashe, QED Risk Services Director, saw a need to assist brokers in meeting all of their NCCP General Conduct Obligations and started the business to do this.
Before QED Risk Services, Greg had spent the past 10 years working in risk management, primarily in financial services in Australia and the UK, and was Head of Compliance for Citigroup's Retail Group in the UK. Greg also has worked for ASIC's sister regulator, APRA, and fully understands how to navigate in the world of regulation. He has also been involved in healthcare, mining, the public sector, property and real estate, tourism and e-commerce.

Greg has a profound ability to store obscure/useless information and certainly is hard to beat at trivia nights.
